Jim Harbaugh: Jabrill Peppers may be the ‘Willie Mays’ of football

When Jim Harbaugh became head coach of the University of Michigan football team, he knew that he was inheriting a pretty good player in Jabrill Peppers. What he may not have known though is that the talented athlete would turn into the star that he is so quickly.

So far this season, Peppers has played offense, defense, and special teams and he is receiving high praise from Harbaugh.

In fact, on Tuesday, Harbaugh compared Peppers to baseball legend, Willie Mays.

Mays, of course, could do just about everything on the baseball diamond, from throwing, to hitting, to fielding, you name it, he did it. A similar description can definitely be given to what Peppers is doing on the football field for the Wolverines.

The scariest part, Peppers is a redshirt freshman and is still considered to be one of the best athletes in the country.

Enjoy him while you can Wolverine Nation!
